Trump phones Bannon behind General Kelly's back, insiders claim

Trump phones Bannon behind General Kelly's back, insiders claim

"It's a reality that he understands politically".

And why is Trump showing his support of Kelly?

It is not a coincidence that with Trump reliant on Fox, the network has seen a ratings decline.

Manigault earned a reputation within the White House for this kind of stuff, and, to many of her colleagues, it quickly overshadowed her comms duties and pro-Trump outreach to African-American audiences. Unfortunately for Kelly, Trump reportedly can not stop playing with his old friends - most notably Steve Bannon. Trump said he would shut down the government next month unless Republicans give him money to build a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border and he issued a controversial pardon for former Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona.

She and Trump go way back. "Keeping him in the dark and feeding him s-- is not going to work". Keith Schiller is unknown to everyone but hardcore political news junkies, but if you're the sort of person who follows Trump closely, you know how important he is to POTUS.

Kelly's mark on policy and the direction of the administration remains uncertain.

Privately, The Times' Glenn Thrush and Maggie Haberman wrote, Kelly was incensed by Trump's bite, telling White House staff he had never been spoken to in that way during his 35 years of military service, according to three sources familiar with the talk.

If the dread for PSL season that people are expressing on Twitter is any indication, we may have reached pumpkin spice overload. Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Latte - or PSL for those in the know - may be the most highly anticipated fall beverage.

So far, Kelly has largely focused on tightening up West Wing protocols and ousting staff that he deemed problematic or unproductive.

Trump developed a deep respect for Kelly during his tenure at Homeland Security.

Kelly is looking to "put a dent" in Omarosa's influence and has been limiting her access to the president.

However, others point out that speculation of growing rifts may be exaggerated.

One alleged irritant is Chief of Staff John Kelly's attempt to limit the information getting to the president.

The first and foremost being, he probably wants to maintain a good relationship with Steve Bannon because he knows if he doesn't, if Bannon gets pissed, he's going to start leaking all of the terrible things that went on behind the scenes with the Trump administration, something that Bannon knows first hand.

A new story from the New York Times by Maggie Haberman and Glen Thrush details how Kelly has tried to still the chaos inside the White House, often frustrating Trump in the process.
